The Concourse is an innovative building that has integrated sustainability principles to reduce its impact on the environment and to provide comfort for users. The building has been designed to minimise water and energy consumption, encourage the use of recycled products, reduce building emissions and improve air quality inside the building.
The Concourse houses one of the largest stormwater re-use systems in Australia, holding up to five mega litres of stormwater. The stormwater will be collected from a 20 hectare catchment of Chatswood CBD building roofs, roads and footpaths and reused throughout The Concourse for grey water purposes.
